Clinical Decision Making in Diverse Populations

This course will consider clinical decision-making for incorporating the needs of a diverse patient population. Cultural competence in health care describes the ability of health care providers and systems to provide care to patients/clients with diverse values, beliefs, and behaviors. This requires individuals to be aware of their own cultural influences and how they may impact perceptions, diagnoses, and interactions with patients/clients as well as how to address these issues in their clinical decision making and daily practice. Topics will include a brief review of The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice Patient Management Model and the International Classification of Function (ICF) Model utilized in clinical practice to support clinical decision making in providing culturally appropriate and sensitive patient care. It will also discuss the issue of health disparities with an examination of culturally appropriate practice issues essential for effective service delivery.
